Over the years and currently, performance evaluation has become very popular in organisational life such that almost every well structured organization has an evaluation system. This paper presents a note on understanding performance evaluation in organizations. The aim is to popularize the theory of performance evaluation in organizations, enlighten stakeholders (academics, human resource managers, practitioners, students and so on) and to provide a comprehensive note to those desirous of knowing the basics of what performance evaluation in organizations entails in a general manner without any specificity to any organization. To accomplish this task, a theoretical exposition (that is an explanatory method of research) was adopted for this study. This paper concludes that performance evaluation in organizations is an indispensable and inevitable activity and recommended that organizations desirous of achieving its set goals and objectives must have a deep regard for the human element (employees/personnel) in organizations. That is the performance evaluation in organizations should primarily be to improve employees performance, and not an avenue to witch hunt them, which will ultimately bring about desired organisational performance
